The Mandi House (Hindi: मंडी हाउस) Metro Station is located on the Blue Line and Violet Line of the Delhi Metro[1] in Delhi, India. It services the cultural hub of Delhi, the Mandi House area which has National School of Drama, Ravindra Bhavan, home of Sangeet Natak Akademi and Sahitya Akademi, Ferozeshah Kotla, Shri Ram Centre for Performing Arts and Triveni Kala Sangam, besides the Bengali Market and the nearby residential areas.

History[edit]

As part of Phase III of the extension of Delhi Metro, Mandi House will be expanded into an interchange station in order to reduce pressure on Rajiv Chowk station.[2][3] A new 6.8-km line is expected to come up from Central Secretariat to a new station at Kashmere Gate by the end of 2015. The new line will be developed on standard gauge and integrated with the Badarpur corridor, which too runs on standard gauge. As the existing Mandi House station has broad gauge tracks, Metro officials are now working on plans to develop a parallel station at the same site.[4][5]
